Carey Milton was stricken today while playing Cy Lakadawala in Round 1of Gambito # 397. He was rushed to Scripps-Mercy Hospital. Eye-witness accounts report that a number of his friends came to his aid: Richard Jensen called 911; Dimitry Kishinevsky ran to the road to flag down the ambulance; James Mahooti applied CPR. I am sure that many of you present also provided assistance.
I heard about this later this evening from Jamieson Pryor and called the hospital at 8:30 p.m.
According to his attending nurse, Carey is stable and sedated at the moment. Carey is *not* in intensive care and can receive visitors. The nurse said that Chuck Ensey has already visited.
We are cautiously optimistic that the incomparable one will pull through (after all, he wins games a full queen down) and return to chess boards to dazzle us all with his wizardry.
Please keep Carey in your thoughts and prayers. We will try to provide you with updates.
